Can I ask for the following information from your authority on the number of empty homes:  

  • How many private sector homes are currently deemed as long-term vacant in your local authority i.e. have been empty for over six months? 
  • How many of these properties have been vacant for over a) two years b) five years and c) ten years?
  • In the year 2016-2017 how many empty homes have been brought into use? (By that I mean are now occupied)
  • How many Empty Dwelling Management Orders (EDMOS) has your authority used in 2017 to date; 2016; 2015; 2014 and 2013? Please could I have this information broken down by calendar year?


Please see the information requested attached for questions 1-3 

The last question will be a Nil response from us as Empty Dwelling Management Orders (EDMOS) are only used in England and Wales.
